I have known Danica for years and personally observed her service in guardianship cases.  I can attest that her knowledge and service places her among the very best of those professional guardians practicing in Brevard County.  Danica and her team are kind and caring, efficient, organzied, and skilled in the practice, and the depth of their knowledge and experiences creates the opportunity for creative problem-solving, and often, problem-prevention.  I have the highest regard for Danica and her team

As the owner of a home health agency, of paramount importance to our operation is integrity, that of our employees and the people with whom we share business opportunities.  Our agency has been a provider of services for Danica and Advocates for the Aging for nearly all of the 9 years we have been in business.  Danica and her staff are extremely knowledgeable of the regulations as they apply to their specific expertise, they are experienced and insightful in dealing with issues, and they are also passionate, yet compassionate in handling their clients on a daily basis.  We have worked with other guardians in the area and find that Advocates for the Aging and specifically, Danica, are most congruent in a high level of ethical and professional standards.  I would heartily recommend Advocates for the Aging and owner, Danica.

My mother's guardian, Danica, literally saved our mother's life and did what she could to help our family heal from the psychological, emotional and financial abuse one member of the family was inflicting on our mother. Ms. Scuderi and her team abide by the highest eithical standards and even though those standards can sometimes be inconvenient (and will certainly cause people who are trying to exploit an elder to stomp their feet and make false accusations) you will be grateful that you have such a trustworthy guardian in place.  Ms. Scuderi is both warm and caring as well as tough and uncompromising when that is called for.  I cannot recommend her highly enough.  Our mother would have died and angry, bitter old woman were it not for Advocates for the Aging.  Their intervention has led to our mother returning to her true, good-natured and loving self.  There is no easy way to end one's life, but Danica and her team have made my Mom's end of life scenario as happy and comfortable as it is possible to be.

Advocates for the Aging is one of the most responsive, caring and appropriate elder care service providers our office has had the pleasure tow ork with.  Danica Scuderi is the heart and soul of AFTA.  Ms. Scuderi truly has a calling to assit the elderly in any facet of care needed whether it is a geriatric care assessment or all the way to being the professional guardian.  Our firm has always been able to rely on AFTA to quickly and accurately assess the situation with an elderly person. We highly recommend AFTA for any situation you encounter with an elderly citizen.

I am my father's guardian but an 1900 miles away.  I needed someone I could trust and depend on to mediate my father's healthcare needs.  Advocates for the Aging has far exceeded expectations.  They are also quick to respond and caring. They sincerely care about my father.  They intervene with hospitalization and share extensive history and experience to ensure quality care. I highly recommend Advocates for the Aging.  You can't go wrong with these folks.  They are a first class organization.

Danica, I just wanted to thank you for all you did for us.  From the first day I met you at the facility where my mom was, I knew what a kind of person you were and that you were the right person for the job!!! It takes a SPECIAL person to do what you do. You are truly a guardian angel to watch over these people like you do.  It means a lot to families that they can have trust in you and your employees from your secretary to your case managers.
